Subject: ASC X12 endorsement of ebXML
FYI: Two excerpts from the current "Disagram" newsletter. From "October X12 Trimester Meeting News" at http://www.disa.org/apps/disagram/dgart.cfm?DocID=468 <<<snip>>> X12 to designate representatives to ebXML To improve the method of working together with the ebXML initiative, X12 will appoint specific delegates to act as representatives of ASC X12 at ebXML meetings. Although many members have participated in the ebXML initiative for a global XML structure, X12 as a group has been without specific representation up until this point. Participants at ebXML act as representatives of their individual companies. As a result, though there have been many X12 members at ebXML working on the standard, there has been no delegate that has directly represented X12. X12 will follow the European Working Group (EWG) in appointing specific delegates to attend the ebXML meetings on ASC X12's behalf. <<<snip>>> From "ASC X12 and UN/EDIFACT Agree to Jointly Develop Business XML" at http://www.disa.org/apps/disagram/dgart.cfm?DocID=469 ASC X12 Committee continued their focus on improving business-to-business communications across industries by voting at their October meeting to develop accredited cross-industry business standards based on the Extensible Markup Language or XML. This respected standards body, accredited by American National Standards Institute (ANSI), will prepare these new standards based on the emerging Electronic Business XML (ebXML) initiative. <<<snip>>> The ebXML initiative is a worldwide effort to develop a common framework for using XML for business messages. A critical part of the initiative combines a definition of business processes with an identification of common or core components used in most business messages. The XML standards proposed by X12 will be based on ebXML recommendations.
